ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO DO ANY WORK ON IT.
Problem 1...Sounds like your problem may be a broken belt, or the belt may have slipped off of the motor pulley, or idler arm pulley.
If you have to replace your drum belt and if you have a front loading machine.
Remove the electrical console that holds the timer switch, start switch, etc. from the top of the dryer. Be real careful not to knock any of the wires off of the timer switch. Then remove the top of the dryer.
Remove the front of the machine, this will expose the belt and drum, remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers, idler arm bracket with pulley, and motor with pulley. Pay attention to the route of the belt, this will come in handy when you go to reinstall the belt and drum.
Sometimes the belt will slip off of the idler arm or motor causing the drum not to turn.
Problem 2...While you have the drum out, you should lubricate the drum rollers at the shaft of the roller with a good grade of machine oil like 3 in One oil.
This will possibly solve your noise problem, also check your drum rollers for flat spots, if they have flat spots on them this will cause a noise like a thumping type noise. You will need to replace the drum rollers if they have flat spots on them.

I hope this helps

My hp 3500 is making a sqeaky noise before it prints. the page comes our beautifully but the noise is disturbing.


I have found these printers to be noisy at the best of times, but bad cartridges can add another level of noise to things. Squeaky cartridges are not uncommon, particularily if they are remanufactured cartridges and not orignal HP products.

Drum making sqeaky noise


The squeak is the rear bearing mount rubbing on the hanger ball. The plastic bearing is gone and that metal piece is cutting a groove into the ball mount. I have a picture. If the ball will be cut off and the drum will fall into the heating element and the belt will break. Not good!
8a3a785.jpgTo get to this bearing you must pop the top and get the belt loose,lift out the drum and inspect the bearing. The kit is fairly reasonable.This is something that a DIYer can easily handle.

Most probably the bearings heating, which in turn heats the rubber seals and causes the belt to slip.
If there is no noise of metal on metal, you may be able to grease the bearings to get some more life out of them.
Taking the drum out is not an easy job though.
